97 ls400 with 204500 miles, engine light on code P0340 camshaft position sensor bank 1, also ticking noise, rough idle, hesitation, loss of power when acceleration if press more on gas car jerks and hesitates. my mechanic has replaced both camshaft sensors, engine cooling temp sensor, cleaned throttle body, but symptoms still present engine light with same code P0340 on. this is how it sounds, i need help i dont wanna lose this car.

So, he didn't check one of two things. The sensor, and the circuitry needed to deliever the signal to the ECU. Or PCM in the case of 96 and newer. You still have the car? Was the actual engine timing checked?

it might be a bomb tell him to cut the red wire noo wait
maybe its the blue wire heheheh

could me cam belt timing out
did u recently get timing belt done at 200000 miles

fk me another fkhead mechanic changing the coolant temp sensor
y the fk do they blame the temp sensor
and why the fk dont they test the sensor before they change it
fking people are not mechanics any more they just fking change parts
and they cant fking diagnose
wish i lived over there i would make a fking fortune by charging alot but actually fixing the car properly heheheheh
